Time Passes Quickly, Like a Summer Cloud—Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Terry is creasing the corn fields now…knocking off the tops of the rows so the corn doesn’t have to grow through too much soil.

Everyday, twice or more times a day we are changing water.

Terry has started the last fields to plant pinto beans, then we have one more field to plant into alfalfa.

The days are long…way into the night right now…but passing fast.

We are making headway…my circle garden in now complete and planted. No longer the derelict western prairie graveyard it WAS looking like.  If the seeds grow, fingers crossed it should soften up.

I am thinking it will look sort of like this garden in time.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. J & D > Non-plussed by the category ‘Mormon creasing the corn’ we tried a google search. And would you believe it, Life on a Colorado Farm is the go-to site for information on this subject. Just try a google search for Mormon creaser, Mormon creasing, etc. You read it first here!

  2. Horticulturalist D > Aha, our first sight of your gardens. Well laid out for regular watering.
    Engineer J > Aha, you have a major crack in your building wall. At a window, so typical of settlement cracks.

    • You are so right! That is our Tile House, made in 1920 all out of tiles to be the milk bottling house, then the wash room and now a storage area for me. I do need to start doing repairs on it and make it into a Still room!
